Lewis books. 

The long-awaited Children’s Museum of Phoenix will open June 14.  Geared toward children 10 and younger, the 70,000-square-foot museum’s opening day exhibits will include an art studio, a miniature market, and a “carwash” for tricycles.  “Downtown Phoenix is more of a real destination for children and adults alike because there are so many more activities,” said Marion Wiener, spokeswoman for the children’s museum.  [Note: To read the full article, click here.]
